Dental Radiology and Imaging

With the advancement of technology, diagnosis and treatment processes have been facilitated in the field of dentistry as in all areas. Of course, a professional dentist can make diagnosis and treatment decisions with a normal examination. However, with dental radiology technologies, problems in the oral, dental, and nerve structures can be seen much more thoroughly.

What is dental radiology?

 

The branch of science allowing to see the oral and dental problems of patients in 2D or 3D and thus ensuring a much more accurate diagnosis is called dental radiology.

What is a periapical X-ray device?

The periapical X-ray device, another important instrument of our clinic, is used to identify the problems that remain hidden around the tooth root end, especially by filming the area at the tooth root end. Thanks to the periapical X-ray device, the suspected teeth and tooth roots can be examined thoroughly and thus the margin of error is minimized in treatment processes.

What are the advantages of dental radiology?

The advantages of dental radiology in our clinic are as follows:

  • Increases the success rate of detailed dentistry procedures such as implant and endodontics (root canal treatment).
  • Both the patient and the dentist are more comfortable in the treatment process.
  • It provides detailed examination of nerves and bones in the mouth, teeth and jaw.
  • It is very important to diagnose the problems that may occur in the mouth, teeth and jaw much more accurately.

Which devices are present in our clinic?

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, our clinic features the following three devices, which are very important for dental radiology:

3-D Dental Volumetric Tomography Device

Periapical X-ray Device

Panoramic X-ray Device

As one of the most important devices in our clinic, the most important advantage of the 3D Dental Volumetric Tomography device is that it allows patients to see their mouth and jaw structure in three dimensions with all its details. In addition to the length and width, the three-dimensional volumetric tomography device, which we can see the depth of teeth, plays a vital role in the diagnosis of jaw and dental diseases. The device we use, especially before implant treatment, allows us to plan the implant process much more firmly and therefore allow patients to undergo a more relaxed implant treatment process.

  • It is used to identify cysts and tumors that may occur in tissues around the mouth, teeth and jaw.
  • It is used to diagnose conditions such as inflammation, decay or cracks that can occur under the filling after the filling process.
  • Dental radiology is used in the treatment of pediatric tooth and following the development of teeth of pediatric patients.
  • It is used to plan a healthier treatment process especially in orthodontic treatments such as implant treatment.
  • Dental radiology is used in the diagnosis and treatment of endodontics (root canal therapy).
  • It is used to identify fractures that may occur in jaw and teeth.
  • It is used to identify the saliva gland related problems.
  • It is particularly used to diagnose bone problems caused by severe gingival diseases.
  • It is used to detect decays that cannot be detected by eyes.
